Villa Parent Association (VPA)
Visit any successful school and you will find that parents are actively and passionately involved in its daily life. This is certainly true at Villa Academy, where creative; hardworking parents are part of every aspect of school life.
Through the VPA, parents help in the classroom and on the field, backstage for theatre productions, and in the cafeteria serving lunch daily. Parents raise thousands of dollars through VPA fundraisers so that grants can be awarded to the faculty for enriched learning in the classroom.
Look closely at this multi-talented parent group and you will see that Villa parents share some things in common—a strong belief that parent volunteerism is the strongest model for shaping good service habits among students and a deep commitment to give generously of their professional and personal skills to make Villa Academy a strong school community.
